For the lover of gemstones, Tanzanite has timeless appeal. Its blue is characterised by indigo and violet flashes. The deep blue colour and limited supply make it a sublime choice for those who love to be different. It is also the birthstone for those born in December.
Tanzanite is found only in one part of the world, Tanzania, in a small area near Mount Kilimanjaro. Supplies are expected to run out within 20 years.
Tanzanite has entered the collections of many celebrity jewellers. Its brilliant colour has held centre stage for some years in the fashion world. While it is sufficiently scratch resistant, Tanzanite is not as hard as some other gems. This makes it most suited to pendants and earrings.
Note: All Tanzanite is presumed to be heat-treated to enhance its colour. This is considered routine.
Details: Oval Tanzanite set in a white gold pendant measuring 9mm x 7mm with a choice of a 40cm or a 45cm 9ct white gold chain.
